“We Must Decide.”

Email Email Print

Peter Robinson has written a few big speeches, and a few of the 20th Century’s most important lines, including “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

Here’s what Peter says of last night’s SOTU:

Addressing the war on radical Islam, the president proved tough, serious, determined. I’d have liked a lot less emphasis on sowing democracy throughout the Middle East and a lot more on making our own republic safe. But Bush once again demonstrated his utter determination to take the war to the enemy.

Most speeches that are remembered, are rememberedd because they are effective, and most speeches that are effective come down to a phrase, like Reagan’s challenge to the Soviets delivered in the shadow of their wall. Last night’s speech comes down to this: “We must decide.”

Today, having come far in our own historical journey, we must decide: Will we turn back, or finish well?

Before history is written down in books, it is written in courage. Like Americans before us, we will show that courage and we will finish well. We will lead freedom’s advance. We will compete and excel in the global economy. We will renew the defining moral commitments of this land. And so we move forward — optimistic about our country, faithful to its cause, and confident of the victories to come.
